Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge Day 7

Such a crafty week and here is my final submission to the week long event.

I had made a card earlier today but as I was posting it I realised it wasn't just sprinkles that was being asked for - there was a colour palette too...oops!

So take two!

This is a bigger than normal card for me sitting on an 8 x 8 blank but the image is so pretty so why not go large as they say in a well known burger chain!

Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge Day 6

I'm a day behind posting, but that's not bad considering I'm on my 5th card this week.  Was busy doing other things yesterday, then had yoga this morning, but I'm now on catch up with my first of hopefully 3 projects today!!!

So, we are talking Bugaboo giraffe blocks, Promarkers and kraft card for today's first project.

Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge Day 5

Day 5 of the Bugaboo Challenge and I've done 4/5 - that is almost as many cards as I made in the whole of last year!!! Well not quite, but I can't remember when creativity and productivity was so high! And I have Hazel to thank for this as she encouraged me to get on with things again!

Today's card is all about cupcakes - don't have a problem with that - cupcakes are yum - and the more frosting the better!

New pic - day light is a wonderful thing!

So it's a Bugaboo image, Promarker colouring and Docraft papers.

Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge - Day 4

I missed yesterday cause it wasn't a card, but I'm back today for the week long challenge event at Bugaboo this time with the bingo challenge.

My simple CAS card uses one of the bugaboo Brat images, coloured with Promarkers.  The sentiment is a die cut, and the little lady is raised on foam pads to sit above the letters.

Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge Day 2

Day 2 Stella Says Sketch

Today it's an old favourite stamp of mine and a coffee themed card,

No colouring on this one, just lots of brown tones from the card used.
...think it's now time I made a mug!

Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge Day 1

Egged on my Hazel. I'm attempting to do the week long Bugaboo 8th Birthday Challenge.

Day 1 Bold & Bright

So after a quick stop off at the Bugaboo Store and armed with a new stamp called Funky Flower Blocks I made this...

Sorry about pic quality, the camera battery no longer charges so pic off my phone, but you get the general idea.  Colouring by Promarkers.

Thank You

It's been so long since I've made a card or posted one I have kinda forgotten the basics! So back to basics it was, a simple image and a short post!

So, Happy New Year to anyone reading this, my followers are few these days a bit like my cards and challenge entries.  I'd like to say things will improve this year, but who knows...only time will tell!

Today's image is a Power Poppy digi, and if there was a new company that would drive me back to card making it may well be this one as I could buy so much over there.  But rather than fill my basket, I've just picked up a couple of images, and my reward, should I use them will be a couple more!

So here's the card

Simple but I like it, and its a start!

Stamping Sensations - Cold and Frosty Colours
Passion for Promarkers - Make it digital
I Love Promarkers - 349 - Anything Goes
MAWTT - Flowers
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes - and a comment front and back - love that idea!

It's been quite a while since I posted on my blog as I've now stepped down from all the DT's I was on and having a bit of a crafty break.  This is my final card for 2017 and it's for the Christmas Cuties as I agreed to Guest Design for them twice this year.

Their theme this time around is


So I can imagine this will be a popular challenge!

My card used lots of oldies as I haven't been buying much new this year, a Dovecraft stamp and old old papers that I loved and because I put that on my blog, the lovely Susan gave me some more from her stash - thanks Mrs!

So here's my card with lots of die cuts and faux stitching.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today Jen is looking for


as the theme for the latest Ooh La La Challenge.

So I chose this lovely fishing boat image off the Paula Oakley Collection.  Coming from a north east fishing town, I love this boat image, reminds me of the harbour I grew up beside and all the huge boats that used to berth there.  Now I know it's not huge on animals, but if you look close you'll see the sea gulls - lots and lots of seagulls - also very prevalent in Fraserburgh!

As You Like It - Animals or People - Animals - I just find them easier!

Well for those that visited my blog on Monday you will have read my kitchen news and the good news is, the workmen arrived and work is now underway - the bad news is I have no kitchen for 3 weeks and my living room is out of action too as I'm getting new flooring throughout both!  Hopefully next visit it will be all smiles and a progress report, but for now, back to Team A again and the latest challenge at MAWTT, and this time we are looking for creations relating to


So for my card I went for autumnal colours and this gorgeous sweetie from Wee Stamps!

The stamp was a new purchase pre coloured digi, but my papers are from the back of the drawer and were a favourite of mine a couple of years ago (Bo Bunny).
